The glow of a holiday can be seriously scarred by a disastrous long-distance flight experience.

Passengers trying to get from Philadelphia to Lisborn were delayed when a woman had to be forcibly removed from their flight after kicking off at the crew. 

And we're pretty sure the 26 passengers on  this Qantas flight won't have fond memories of the gastrointestinal illness that struck midflight, resulting in a mass vomiting and diarrhoea episode.

Puking babies. One too many drinks. Awful delays. Mid-air relationship breakups . . . there are so many ways a long-distance flight can go horribly wrong.
